Of Time and Rhythm: The Dances

Playful Cadence
Choreographer: Marissa Young

A light-hearted confrontation between tap dancers and contemporary-style dancers. Senior Dance Studies minor Marissa Young presents the playful struggle between a lack of control and the exhaustion resulting from too much control. “Marissa is a multi-talent dancer, and one of her strengths is tap—as a matter of fact, she’s teaching tap-dancing here on campus," said Artistic Director Sharon Butcher.  "Her process of figuring out how to combine tap dance and contemporary choreography on stage simultaneously and still make sense resulted in this dance. It was a great process and I think it turned out really well.”
